      I'd get a worm gear winch from Harbor Freight. They are infinitely adjustable and cannot get unlatched and then go fast....you have to wind and unwind them. Also cheap. The only downside is that you have a ton of leverage, so you have to be careful not to get confused and pull against your draw stops....you could snap your bow up with one using your pinky finger.

      I made one with this same worm winch and it is awesome.
      of course, like everything else, the price is now 10 bucks more than it was a few years ago...still not bad

      Advantage of a worm drive winch, the handle will never get away from you and smack you.
      Dis-advantage of a worm drive winch. SUPER slow to get to full draw, and super slow to return to brace.
      Remove the handle, re-install the nut. Use a nut driver on an impact wrench, to speed up working the worm drive winch.

      Do you think this one would work?


      I really like the design of the ArcheryDezigns draw board. The one that mounts into the tubes of the LCA press. I wish I could find one of those winches somewhere then I could make my own.

      That is the one I have,,remove the cable and replace with rope,,makes for a much easier, friendlier set up

      are you talking about these? (yep had been looking awhile myself, found a mfr in europe for that style winch but way more costly.
      Two cdraw boards I buil;t used one of the HF cable winches and one the belt version. The cable you can shorten big time, the belt, not as easiliy but is lighter. both work just fine

      I used this one for my build and it works perfect. I took the handle off and use a drill and socket to run most of the length and turn by hand for fine tuning.

      this allows forward and reverse micro cranking and locks in place with each small turn (cannot fail, must be uncranked)
      That one would work a lot better than the one I got. The worm drive will make it a breeze

      Go a pic of these harbour freight winches?
      Here's a worm-gear winch: It doesn't click at all, you just wind it in or wind it out.

      But beware the Harbor Freight Winch I bought is not what I'd call "strong". I only use it to bend my trad bows so that I can string or unstring them. I can't use a regular bow stringer because I'm an above the knee right leg amputee and work from a wheel chair.

      But if I needed a "good, strong" worm-gear winch for lifiting/moving heavier loads, I'd get this one:
